South of Haiti from Alex Horner on Vimeo:
In October 2012, Nick, Dave, Francisco and I, set off on a 10 day journey along the Southern coast of Haiti in the back of a pickup. Our goal? To capture a side of Haiti that is rarely seen. Having been to Port Au Prince multiple times, it was refreshing to see Haiti in a new light. It’s important to recognize that the images typically shown of Haiti, or any 3rd world country, do not necessarily represent the country as a whole. It has nothing to do with putting blinders on to problems and needs, but all to do with expanding your perception of a country.
We hope that these images can help motivate someone to get out and go somewhere that may seem scary or intimidating. When you get into it, it’s not all bad.
